So I had my RNY 4 years ago. I lost a huge chunk of weight (over 100 lbs), but when I started school I slacked a little in being careful with my eating and did a lot more sitting (studying, etc). And as a consequence I gained 15+ pounds. So after graduation I went back to a high protein, very low carb diet (similar to Atkins, with some minor differences). I lost the 15+ and about 20 more too.
Now I'm still wanting to lose about 25 or so pounds, but I'm thinking South Beach might be better for me. The very low carb (mostly meat, veggies and nuts) causes some issues such as constipation, and I have to work really hard to get fiber in that I used to get through whole grains and fruits. Also I'm getting bored with no variety in my diet, and I'm afraid I will wander if I don't add some sort of variety. For these reasons SBD is making more sense to me.
So, I'm just wondering how SBD is for those of us with GBP? Isn't it basically low glycemic, fairly low carb, etc. And is it pretty close to how we are supposed to be eating? Or is it too high carb for us? Thoughts? What have you read about it? What has your experience been? Etc?
Thanks in advance, you all are always quite helpful!
